Sentinel Primary Care operates based on your membership fee rather than based on insurance reimbursement, so we don’t bill you or your insurance for your visits.  That means you’ll have no co-pays or other bills for visits; your visits are covered under the membership fee!  This also means that we can see people with all insurance plans including Medicare.  Read more about our model on our FAQ page.

Health Care Sharing Ministries

We gladly work with Health Care Sharing Ministries such as Samaritan Ministries, Medi-Share, and Christian Healthcare Ministries; we offer substantial discounts on most labs and we can provide documentation of the professional fees that would have been billed in a traditional fee-for-service model, which can be submitted to the ministry.

One-time Visit

We offer one-time visits that you can use to address the issue at hand, meet Dr. O’Connell & the office staff, and see if the practice is a good fit; the visit is a temporary membership!  The cost is $50, and if you join the practice within 6 months we’ll apply the fee to your annual membership.  Note that a one-time visit fee does not cover outside studies like a chest X-ray or bloodwork, which will be billed by the radiology office, lab, etc that performs the test.

Charitable Care

For our charitable care patients we charge one hour of minimum wage for an hour-long annual physical and 30 minutes of minimum wage for 30-minute follow-up and acute visits.  Our charitable care services provide primary care for those without health insurance.  Please see our Eligibility Policy for additional information on qualifications for charitable care.

Tax-deductible Donations

Sentinel Primary Care is a 501(c)(3) non-profit; you can support our service to the uninsured by making a tax-deductible donation.
